Elderberry Syrup Recipe 2

With at least 4 months of cold/flu weather up here in North Idaho, I just have to stock up on all my flu-fighting essentials so I don’t run out in an emergency!

Seriously, {Read More}

Family Day at Walter’s Fruit Ranch in Green Bluff, WA

Walter's Fruit Ranch 7

Fall is my favorite time of year. I just love when the weather cools off and we get to pull out the sweaters that have been shoved to the back of our drawers during summer. I absolutely love all the colors of fall, the trees always changing and then making a beautiful blanket on the ground. Everything about fall makes me warm, happy and sentimental. This is the time of year that I love doing those special, memory-creating activities with my {Read More}

Quick ‘n Easy Chicken Pot Pie Dinner Recipe

We all know how crazy things are around dinnertime..
